The Bünemann lab studies spatiotemporal dynamics and fundamental principles of coupling within G protein coupled signaling networks. We are specifically interested in the dynamics of GPCR activation, deactivation and desensitization as well as the dynamics and their mode of interaction with G proteins and arrestins. Furthermore we study dynamics of G protein subunit interaction with important effectors including adenylyl cyclases, PLCbeta and RhoGEF proteins. Many of our assays are based on Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) and fluorescence based mobility measurements which allow for high temporal resolution measurements in single cells. Some of our current efforts are devoted to unravel the mechanism of voltage dependence of GPCRs and probing the effect of membrane voltage on the pharmacology of these receptors.
In the role of Faculty Member, Moritz Buenemann contributes recommendations and reviews to the Neuronal Signaling Mechanisms Section in the Neuroscience Faculty, writing brief accessible comments to summarize the value of the articles and adding rating score.
The Faculty comprises Heads of Faculty, Heads of Section, Faculty Members and Associate Faculty Members, as well as an International Advisory Board.
